Comic Book Recommendations..._____________September 2nd, 2004 - thursday___



September 2nd, 2004 - thursday

I don't exactly promote pamphlet comics heavily on this site, since I'm one of those snooty graphic-novel-or-trade-paperback-only-please bastards (despite me producing a comic in serialized pamphlet issues, of course. You see how I'm a total sell out?) Well, despite this, I still do pick up some regular comics because of the quality of work, and I know that if I don't support them, they may never find their way to the collected trade format. One of the books I pick up regularly is DEMO by Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan. In issue 9, they printed my pin-up fan art doodle I did for them a while back. It feels nice to have some of my scribbles in an issue of a book I've regularly enjoyed. Thanks guys, if you're reading this.

Another book I like is one called Street Angel by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca. It's printed through Slave Labor Graphics, and you can view some sample pages here. My friend Alfred recommended the first issue to me, and after reading through it, I was thoroughly charmed. It's a neat little story about a super agent that happens to be a punk teenage girl that likes to skate. Or perhaps it's the other way around? In any case, I enjoy the stories, I dig the drawings, I like it. I think the new issue will be on the stands soon, and I recommend picking it up.

And here's another review of Daisy Kutter, over at Comic Book Resources...

Since it was also my Mom's birthday a few weeks before I started these journal sketches, I hadn't done one for her. She sent me an email with a frown on it, and I felt like a heel. So here's another one, just for her, that has my brother and me in it as well. It's pretty awesome to have a Mom that listens to Bjork and Radiohead. In fact, people think she's much cooler than me, and they're absolutely right.

I love you Mom! :D
